William commented on Spill Resistant Disposable Cup (Patent-Pending)

Hi there.

Really interesting idea. You talk a lot about the user testing which revealed some great insights. I am wondering if you tested the idea on another key stakeholder - the coffee makers themselves. For many baristas coffee making is key. How do you anticipate the process of serving the coffee to be altered by this design and have you tested the impact to speed and efficiency of serving?

Love the idea and really excited to see the developments.


Hey Essma.

Thanks for your comment. Yes I totally understand what you are getting at it is key that in order to fully participate in a korse. I think that this is fact that in the case of something like Finance, or say Chemistry is probably an unavoidable reality. This is why we have slightly pivoted our idea to move more towards soft skills and supportive content that can then be built out into a larger korses for crowd sourcing. We are still very keen to have the most specific subjects represented on the platform with, as you say, perhaps a smaller number of people to source from.

Hey Natasha,

Thanks for your comment, I do really like the idea of the dialogue between students and potential students think that it could be a great addition. will look at a way we can weave it in for sure.
